Because a limited number of HP-sponsored Encore Fellowships are available, a fellowship is not guaranteed.
HP and Encore.org are pleased to announce a new pilot program to help eligible employees* transition to retirement by working with a local nonprofit organization as an Encore Fellow. In 2015, HP will support a small number of Encore Fellowships as part of our long-term commitment to community engagement and our investment as a founding sponsor of the Encore Fellows program.

Human resources professionals are taking notice of the human talent represented by the encore population - and implications for both corporate and nonprofit employers. A three-part piece in Human Resources: People and Strategy magazine includes a conversation between Encore Fellowships Network national director Leslye Louie and Encore.org VP Marci Alboher, an essay by Marc Freedman and a profile of Encore Fellow Jere King Brooks.
Jere King served an Encore Fellowship with Abilities United, a Palo Alto non-profit focused on community inclusion that has been serving children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities. Before her fellowship, Jere was a vice president of marketing at Cisco, retiring in November 2011.
This article in Career 2.0 describes Jere's transition and her current work, post-fellowship, at Stanford.
